I recently presented a poster about our research on load testing in Delft at the ACI Spring Convention in Detroit, MI.
Poster presentations are not something I’m quite used to. I’ve written about my experience presenting a poster for the first time (in 2012), and since presenting that poster, I’ve only given lectern sessions. Besides that, I’ve made two posters for the research school of building and construction of the Netherlands, for their book of research projects, way back in 2009 and 2010.
The poster sessions was well attended, and I enjoyed the direction interaction with the audience. As such, I’d vote in favor of adding more poster presentations to the conferences in my field (as long as we can consider them as equal to lectern sessions, instead of considering them as a little “less” valuable).
You can find the poster here (you can scroll through it):
